Water and energy are inextricably linked. Energy production is one of our nation’s largest consumers of water, and moving and purifying water consumes lots of energy. But water is also a precious resource, far more so than energy. You can live for 5 days without electricity, but try doing that with water.
About 1% of the world’s water is fresh and potable and in Michigan, we are surrounded by 20% of the world’s potable water supply. It is a resource that we all cherish, and water protection and conservation is more important than ever. Even in Michigan, we are over-taxing our aquifers and wasting water at an enormous rate. Many of the techniques below exist to build homes that use far less water with no decrease in performance. These techniques can also save a lot on your monthly water bill.
I thought the costs were presented in a realistic fashion and we were able to stick to the budget.
We were very impressed with all of the subcontractors we met and the quality of the work they did.
The project manager, designer and on-site manager were exceptionally professional and clearly committed to creating the best possible home for us.
The design for this whole project was excellent. We appreciated the high quality and creative work. We are very happy with Meadowlark, and would recommend them as high quality builders.
